When using the word type we think of classifications. Being classified as a parent is more than just the event when you give birth or adopt a child. Becoming a good parent is through trial and error and there is no special training involved. There are all types of parents with their own personalities that are passed on to their children.
What type of parent are you? I believe parents fall into categories just as children fall into categories. This is our character make up. As parents, we must instill and set good examples. Children are very observant and take their cue from their parents. That is why as Christians, we live a Godly life and introduce as part of raising children the love of God and Jesus.
There are parents that can be labeled "blinded by love parent", "protective parent", do nothing parent", and "do right parent". There is a little of all these characters in us that are parents excluding the, I hope, "do nothing parent". As parents we are very protective, love, and may even be blind to our child's faults. Out of love, as the saying goes is blind.
When we bring children into this world, this is the start of nurturing and molding the development of that small individual. There will be challenges but the rewards are well worth it. From our own childhood memories, we use part of the standards our own parents set in rearing us. We also thought, when I have my own children, I'm going to do things this way. My children will not be raised like this. We want our children to be raised properly in the way God intended. The word of God says "Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it" (Proverbs 22:6 C.E.V.).
Overall, we want the best life for our children, wisdom, and a good character.
